Storyline

Old Jacob, the shepherd, while securing his flock of sheep for the night, stands entranced because of a wonderful vision of the Supreme Being. In the vision the Lord asks him if the sheep are all safe in the fold. Jacob replies that they are, but discovers later that a little lamb is missing. Lantern in hand, he goes forth to search for the missing lamb. He discovers the frightened little creature and restores it to the distressed mother ewe. Old Jacob has accepted the vision as a literal inquiry about the welfare of his flock. The simple old fellow does not realize that his most precious lamb, Nell, his only daughter, stands on the threshold of a great indiscretion and that her safety requires his intervention. She has become infatuated with a young scoundrel, Arthur Harding, who has persuaded her to elope with him under the promise of marriage. Nell flees from the safety and comfort of her modest home and betrays the affections of two honest old hearts that beat only for her. Again ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Some delightfully rustic scenes
1 September 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

In this two part production occur some delightfully rustic scenes of the pastoral sort. Large herds of sheep on deep perspectives add a charm to an extremely well staged picture. The story is of a young girl who eloped with a stranger, and about to be led into a mock marriage, is warned by the false minister, fleeing before it is too late. She is afterwards rescued by a Salvation Army woman, who finds her in one of the city parks, and is soon brought face to face with her father, who in answer to a message conveyed to him through a vision of Christ, has followed his child to the city. - The Moving Picture World, February 13, 1915
